Understanding the Advantages of Rigid Insulation
Rigid insulations are available in many product and system configurations offering optimum performance for all types of building applications. In this one-hour course, various rigid insulation products will be discussed with an emphasis on molded polystyrene (EPS) and their specifications. Environmental factors and product comparisons will be provided. Physical properties and field performance will be examined, including a review of the factors that affect R-value.
- Define types of rigid insulations used in construction
- Identify the environmental impact of rigid insulations
- Describe how age, temperature, and moisture affect R-value
- Explain the appropriate specifications for insulation
